This morning, 7:15, Ann Mitchell and I were at Montezuma to finally find the Hudsonian Godwit in the same area as has been reported. Unfortunately for Dave and Susan it also was able to pull the disappearing act that frustrated Susan and I twice yesterday. The torrential rain made for damp viewing but we were rewarded with stellar views eventually.
We also saw two Terns flying resolutely north from Frontenac Park in Union Springs. The great distance, western shore, made it to difficult to call as to what species. I thought Common Tern and when Chris Wood and Jessie Berry said they just observed two Commons at Miliken Station it seemed to fit the bill.

One bright male HUDSONIAN GODWIT was foraging in one of the open spots in the pool not far to the northeast off the visitor center deck. We watched it until nearly dusk. Two Sandhill Cranes called toward the Main Pool as well.
